This Has Potential
Avery, 26, has established a reputation as a contentious player with controversial statements and a league penalty minute crown part of his package.
The 5-foot-11, 185-pound pivot has toned down his act this season and is on pace for his most productive season. Through 55 games, Avery has 10 goals, 28 points, 116 penalty minutes and is minus-10.
He may have toned down his act, but the LA media has toned down its act as well.
It’s not like it used to be, but they still cover hockey here in NY and it’ll be interesting to see how long Avery stays quiet with more microphones in his face. I also wonder how he’ll deal with a later last call (sometimes non-existent, if you’re in the right place…).
